If summer had a scent, it would be the smell of barbecue. Since it’s always summer in Hawai‘i, the delicious smoky smell of summer can be enjoyed all year long thanks to Da Bomb BBQ and its owner, Jason Lofland.
Raised in Alaska, Lofland studied culinary arts at Le Cordon Bleu, Western Culinary Institute in Portland, Oregon. He moved to Hawai‘i in 2000 and interned at the Westin Maui. Today, he likes to say he’s a “Le Cordon Bleu chef with a smoking problem.”
